              MODERATOR VACANCY INVESTIGATION (MVI)
              moderated group rec.arts.startrek.info

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because
moderated newsgroup rec.arts.startrek.info is not functioning,
and may have been abandoned by its moderator(s).

This investigation will attempt to verify the reasons for non-function,
and may result in the removal of the group or the selection and instal-
lation of a new moderator.  In practice, the Big-8 Management Board
considers the third alternative--changing the status of the group from
moderated to unmoderated--as likely to cause more harm than good.

RATIONALE:

According to Google's archive the last regular post was approved on
2002-01-01. A probe message resulted in a bounce.
